1st newbie overclock ok or not ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hello guys,

after a lot off trial and error i finally got my E8600 a bit overclocked.

here is a screenshot off the voltages etc...



what do you guys think off the used voltages ? i only changed the Vcore and NB a bit (with all the rest i am a complete noob :-) ).

I also tried to put the FSB to 1800Mhz to get 4.5Ghz CPU speed ; but then the system would hang or give me 200 Mhz bus speed instead off 450Mhz in CPU-Z.

anyone has an idea why ?

i have tested it with intelburn test (@very high) : passed
and also did a memtest which also passed

i still have some issues with the corsair RAM's but i will post this later on

greetz,
davy

So is that stable with Prime95?
Still, a very nice overclock, well done.

you could probably tweak the core voltage to be a little lower; maybe not. worth a try.

nice oc tho. you can go higher. you have a E8600

mmmm strangest thing happend.... booted up PC.... runs @ 2.6 Ghz according to CPU-Z .... bus speed @ 266MHz and 1066 FSB ????

i know i have set the FSB to 1600 manually ?

could this be due faulty BIOS or MOBO ???
